Since you can put any widget in the tab label area instead of just a
Label, this can be done pretty easily by packing in a Label and a
Button into an HBox and adding that to the label area instead.  There
is unfortunately no prepackaged way to do this, but I don't think it's
MD's place to implement new GTK+ widgets.  I'd take it upstream if you
really want something provided for you.
